Synthesis and flame retardant potential of polyols based on bisphenol-S

Polyether polyols based on bisphenol-S were prepared by alkoxylation and compared with analogs based on bisphenol-A, as well as standard aromatic polyester, and polyether polyols for viscosity and temperature stability. Thermo-oxidative stability was determined by thermo-gravimetric analysis, pyrolysis gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy, and...

An adhesive elastomeric supramolecular polyurethane healable at body temperature

In this paper, we report the synthesis and healing ability of a non-cytotoxic supramolecular polyurethane network whose mechanical properties can be recovered efficiently (>99%) at the temperature of the human body (37 DEGC). Rheological analysis revealed an acceleration in the drop of the storage modulus above 37 DEGC, on account of the...

Shape-memory properties of crosslinked biobased polyurethanes

Biobased crosslinked polyurethanes were synthesized and characterized as shape-memory polymers. Both the macrodiol and the diisocyanate were derived from renewable sources; the first one from castor oil, and the second one from l-lysine amino acid. The influence of component molar ratios, crosslink density and maximum elongation on the shape-memory...
